Using my Embroidery Machine

I know that most of you drop by to see what I am beading or creating with my beads.  But today, I want to share another of my creative pursuits with you.  I actually am lucky enough to own two sewing machines with embroidery capabilities.  They are older machines, but the both still work very well.  My first and oldest is a Viking Designer 1.  I use that one primarily for sewing because it just seems to do that best. 

My other machines is a Brother Pacesetter ULT2003D.  Yes, it is one that came with the built in Disney designs and handles the Disney cards.  I have done a lot of Disney stuff for my family on it.

As many of you also know, I adopted a Golden Retriever puppy three months ago.  He has been taking a lot of my time to train.  But it has been worth it.  Now, I want to show him and my love for him to the world.  And I also want him to get used to the noises that happen in my work room.  I decided it was time to run the embroidery machine.

I got a GREAT buy on some sweatshirts and t-shirts on the clearance rack, and this is what I did with them.

New Sweatshirt 003

I found this blue hooded sweatshirt for $3.00.  I decided to do the same design on the front and on the back.  Luckily, I was able to get it in two sizes.

This is the larger design on the back of the sweatshirt.

I put this beautiful face on the front of a grey sweatshirt.  I wore this one to puppy class already.

I have several more designs that I am hoping to find the right garments to display them.  And I have several more grey sweat shirts waiting to be made into custom garments.  So, guaranteed, Tanner will hear the embroidery machine a lot more.

By the way, if you are wondering how he did.  I don’t think he even noticed that it was running.

Just wanted to share a photo of Tanner that I had taken yesterday at the local pet shop.  They do these to benefit local animal charities.  I think he did really well for being only 5 months old.  I know it will be a memory that I will treasure forever.

Blessings,

Beth
